Spiced Honey Cake

This week I baked Dorie Greenspan's Spiced Honey Cake from Baking Chez Moi.    It's a loaf cake that begs to be tweaked and, since I had neither lavender flowers nor Szechuan peppercorns, I had to make do!  I used some regular peppercorns and upped the ginger.

The cake will be different every time, depending on the honey and spices.  This time, my honey was from a beekeeper, organic farmer near Portland, Oregon.  Next time, I'll use honey from a beekeeper and farmer in Ithaca, NY.


  1. My family wished I didn't have the lavender to add! It looks wonderful with the toasted almond topping and I'm sure it will be tasty too.

  2. I think everyone would be happy to leave out the lavender. Glad you enjoyed your cake.

    1. I did try it toasted with some black raspberry preserves. Yummy!
